Matchday Insight: Week 10

AVB - "I'm not letting you go anywhere..hehe"
Hello all, I'm taking up writing duties from AM this weekend so he could concentrate one of his wavering teams that got off to blistering starts but has gone into stagnation. As we go into week 10 with almost 1/4th of the season over your ranks would be settling and not feeling more like a crazy roller coaster ride. Now its time to dig deep into your fantasy manager brains and start climbing those ranks. Now ranks will represent quality rather than flukes so if your a good manager you would surely move up. Another all important Capital One Cup round midway through with the teams testing their depth in ranks and mostly resting their first team squad. Here's what we have lined up for the weekend.

Matchday Insight : Week 9

We saw some good performances by midfielders in Week 8, with the likes of Nolan, Sterling, Michu and co. scoring and producing double digit scores. It was not a very productive week for defenders or keepers as most of the games were deprived of a clean sheet. 

Week 9 has a lot of potentially high scoring encounters. Arsenal host QPR at the Emirates, City host Swansea, Reading host Fulham and Tottenham are away to Southampton. All these fixtures seem to be high scoring and I would be looking to load most of the players from these teams.

Big one in Week 9 is Chelsea vs Manchester United. With Chelsea is prime form and coming off a loss against Shakhtar in midweek ( their first loss of the season ) are up against a team who are conceding and scoring goals. Man Utd cant afford to be 7 pts behind the leaders and I see this is game as a must win or draw for the visitors.

Well, lets get straight to matchups and picks for Week 9

Matchday Insight : Week 8

Seems like a long break, doesn't it ? There isn't any reason to like these international breaks and its great to be nearing a matchday, an EPL matchday. Its week 8, one-fifth of the season mark, and its time to step up as a fantasy manager.

Good thing about a break is it breaks the momentum in case you have not been doing well and gives you lots of time to reconsider your strategy moving forward. There have been many points that ones got to learn from the way this season has started.

Week 8 starts with a London derby and has some nice fixtures which you could easily call one sided. The pick of the lot are :

Matchday Insight : Week 7

Coming off a very high scoring week 6 where we saw some big numbers from forwards like Suarez, Jelavic, Ba, Crouch etc who have been knocking on the door for a few weeks and it was about time they all got themselves on the scoresheet.It does confirm the fact that "put your money forward" , a rule, which we have been stressing on from day 1.

Week 7 is no less of excitement as there are around 8-9 one sided fixtures and which could all feature in our easy match ups. Options are plenty and this is where differentials will lead you ahead.

Lets get straight to the best 15 picks along with the easy matchups :
